I have had the great fortune and honor to work with some of the most dynamic personal trainers/fitness coaches who happen to be women. On more than one occasion I have seen men, whether in good physical condition or not frown, scowl or have immediate hesitation in training with a woman.
Has there been any experience any of you have come across regarding this situation and how was it handled.
I’ve been in this business for a long time and I would simply suggest that anyone who puts a gender based judgement on a trainer’s capabilities is a fool of the highest order. I think that at this time and age intelligent clients rely far more on the experience and capability of his/her trainer than on gender. I know there are exceptions.
First and foremost, present your qualifications and capabilities as a trainer without any gender reference.
